Spectra Group (UK) Ltd, world leading provider of high-grade information security and communication capabilities, is connecting with wider global markets over the next few months, with their revolutionary SlingShot satellite communications systems.

Following on from their recent contract successes in UK and USA, Spectra Group are responding to increasing market interest by supporting their local sales partners and exhibiting at a selection of key global events including: GlobalSOF, Madrid (25th-27th Sept), Booth 4; AUSA, Washington (8th-10th) Oct, stand number 3138 and Africa Security Symposium, Dakar (7th-9th Nov). These events succeed Spectra’s recent attendance at Africa Endeavour (Cape Verde), Land Forces (Australia) and DVD (UK) where there was a considerable amount of interest shown in the capabilities Spectra are able to offer.

SlingShot is a unique system that enables UHF and VHF radios to work on L-Band Satellite frequency, allowing users to instantly extend the range of their communications equipment to BLOS (Beyond Line of Sight).  Conceived and designed to meet demanding Special Forces requirements, SlingShot also offers a significant number of benefits for conventional forces, intelligence agencies and border patrols requiring secure, reliable and robust Communications On The Move (COTM) over great distances.  Over 3000 SlingShot systems are in operation world-wide, used by 18 different organisations, including several NATO countries, as Manpack, Vehicle, Maritime and Aviation fits.

In addition to voice, SlingShot enables low latency data capability, supporting mission-critical applications such as artillery fire missions, situational awareness and biometric analysis.  With reduced cost compared to traditional TACSAT, increased channel availability, and almost no increase in the training requirement, SlingShot is redefining tactical communications.  Spectra currently has a strategic relationships with Inmarsat, whose L-TAC™ service exclusively uses SlingShot.
